Follow latest updates from tonight’s match as Chelsea look for their first Premier League win of 2022


Tuchel demands clarity over EPL COVID protocols

Follow live updates as Brighton host Chelsea i Premier League i kveld. Thomas Tuchel’s side are looking to respond to their 1-0 defeat to Manchester City på lørdag, a result which left the Blues 13 points behind the Premier League leaders in the table and the Chelsea manager conceding that their title hopes are out of their hands.

In any case, Chelsea are without a win in three in the Premier League, a run which started with a 1-1 draw at home to Brighton in late December, med Danny Welbeck’s late header rescuing a point for Graham Potter’s side. Although Chelsea have won three matches in cup competitions since the New Year, it leaves them still looking for their first Premier League win of 2022.

Brighton, i mellomtiden, have been given a lift following recent wins over Brentford and Everton and Potter’s side sit ninth in the table and on a run of four games unbeaten. Brighton’s form this season has left Potter linked with the vacant position at Everton following the sacking of Rafael Benitez, but the Englishman has insisted he is happy at what he called “one of the best-run football clubs in the Premier League”. Tonight’s fixture is the last Premier League match standing after Watford’s trip to Burnley was postponed. Follow live updates from Brighton vs Chelsea below:


Brighton 1 – 1 Chelsea

69 minutter: Brighton sense that the game is there for the taking. It’s pretty open now. Neal Maupay has two half-chances to score as the Seagulls work the ball into the box from both wings.

Maupay doesn’t quite manage to turn Lamptey’s pass towards goal and then Trossard’s chip into the six-yard box just evades him.

Brighton 1 – 1 Chelsea

66 minutter: Chance! Chelsea seem to have stepped up a gear, certainly in an attacking sense, as Hudson-Odoi combines with Mount on the left edge of the box. There’s no way into the area though as Brighton hold them in place so the ball is rolled back to Alonso. He drills one from range but smokes it over the crossbar.

Brighton 1 – 1 Chelsea

63 minutter: The game is very much alive now as Graham Potter brings on his big guns. Neal Maupay and Leandro Trossard replace Danny Welbeck and Pascal Gross.

Chelsea have the next chance to score though. Callum Hudson-Odoi breaks into the box from the left and rolls the ball onto his right foot. He shoots but his effort is blocked and the rebound comes to N’Golo Kante. He fires one at goal from outside the box but drills it high and wide.

GOAL! Brighton 1 – 1 Chelsea (Webster, 60’)⚽️

60 minutter: Glorious header! Brighton win a corner that Alexis MacAllister swings into the middle of the box. Adam Webster looks to make a run behind one of the Chelsea defenders before changing direction and squeezing in front. He meets the ball with a solid header and powers it at Kepa Arrizabalaga. There’s too much pace on it for the Chelsea goalkeeper to keep out and Brighton have an equaliser!

Brighton 0 – 1 Chelsea

59 minutter: An hour player at the Amex Stadium. There’s a relatively sedate tempo to the game unless either team breaks on the counter-attack and then the players burst forward.

Azpilicueta links up with Lukaku and whips a cross in from the right side. The ball drops over Hudson-Odoi but bounces out to Alonso. He shoots and has his effort blocked.

Brighton pass it quickly to Lamptey who flies into the vacant space left by Alonso. The Chelsea left-back sprints after him and hacks Lamptey down in the middle of the pitch picking up a yellow card in the process.

Brighton 0 – 1 Chelsea

57 minutter: Marcos Alonso and Tariq Lamptey get into a bit of a tussle as Brighton attempt to take a throw in deep in Chelsea’s half and the referee comes over to tell them to quit it. The throw in wins the Seagulls a corner but Chelsea deal with it well.

Brighton 0 – 1 Chelsea

54 minutter: Lukaku gets the ball and lays it quickly off to Mount who threads a pass in between the Brighton centre-backs as Ziyech runs in behind. He sprints towards the ball but Sanchez is out quickly. The ball rolls into the box and the Brighton goalkeeper wins the race and gets low to smother it. Ziyech looked offside anyway.

Brighton 0 – 1 Chelsea

51 minutter: Great defending from Thiago Silva. Hudson-Odoi brings the ball down the left side and attempts to play it up the pitch but his pass is intercepted. Brighton send the ball to MacAllister who floats it into the box for Welbeck. He brings it down and heads towards goal but is matched stride of stride by Thiago Silva. He gets to the striker just as he’s about to shoot and shoves him off the ball before passing it out from the back for Chelsea.

Brighton 0 – 1 Chelsea

48 minutter: A Chelsea corner is headed out as far as Ziyech. He ball bounces up nicely for him and he’s encouraged to shoot from range. He drills another left-footed effort but gets charged down by Gross.

Second half: Brighton 0 – 1 Chelsea

Kick off: Chelsea have never been behind at half-time in any Premier League game this season.

Chance! Brighton get the match restarted and immediately break Chelsea down. Gross threads the ball in behind the centre-backs and plays in Welbeck. He shoots from the left side of the box but smokes his effort into the side netting!
